    Was a very good fight but from one side only. It was incredible to watch the kamikaze Japanese warrior in a full relentless attack during the whole fight in spite of receiving a cruel punishment. He has an iron chin and fierce determination but his techniques were quite poor. Hopefully he is in good shape after this brutal fight. Cotto did really well and calmly survived the storm connecting excellent punches and combinations as he was able to do on the best time of his career. However, I guess it is time for him to go for retirement since this sport carry on bad future consequences.
